Default 2 ways to cook steak

Whats yalls opinion on cooking steak. You can only pick 1 or 2... no input. This is a debate me and a coworker are having.

1. cooking a steak on a propane grill, nothing special, just season it, throw it on there, flip it and take it off. then enjoy

2. pre heat a cast iron skillet in the oven, sear both sides of the steak on the pre heated skillet, put the seasoned steaks in the cast iron skillet and put back in oven for a couple minutes each side, and take it out and let it sit. then enjoy

But my preferred method is sous vide, then finish out on cast iron or hot coals

None of the above? Gas is for hot dogs and warming up smoked sausage.
Steak is charcoal at a minimum, hot mesquite coals preferred.

I prefer my steak cooked with butter in a cast iron. I'll grill over wood too but it's not my favorite.

Only time searing on cast iron make sense to me is after you cook it sous vide.
